But I heard about Dodd's Kidney Pills
and thought I would give them a trial.
So I got a box and began taking them.

WANT THE LAW INTERPRETED.
Officiate of Sioux and Gosper Coun
ties Want Information.
The legal department of the state
has been asked by the officials of
Sioux and Gosper counties for an In
terpretation of the Judge Tucker
law, enacted by the legislature, pro
viding for the selection of jurors.
Under the terms of the law neither
of these counties can figure just how
they can select a jury, and so far the
legal department has not been able
to solve the puzzle, though It has not
given up. In the meantime it was
thought advisable to write Judge
Tucker; but, as he has troubles of
his own, this plan has been abandon
ed and the attorney general will con
tinue at work on the proposition,
though guesses from other attorneys
will be in order.
The proposiion to be solved is as
follows: Section 1674 of the supple-'
ment to Cobbey's statutes provides:
"How Names Selected From List
That upon the completion of the
canvass of election returns said
board shall select at least 500 names
from the tally sheet, provided that
the tally sheet contains that many
names; if the tally sheet does not
contain 500 names, then from the
actual number of names contained on
said sheet, in all counties having less
than 30,000 inhabitants in the man
ner following: They shall divide the
number of electors to be selected by
the number of the voting precincts
and allot to each voting precinct the
quotient or number thus obtained;
then the board shall divide the num
ber of names found upon each tally
sheet of each voting precinct by the
quotient or number alloted to each
voting precinct; then shall count
from the top of the tally sheet of the
precinct the number of names of this
last quotient, the last name of which
shall be selected and put into a re
ceptacle as hereinafter provided;
then again count down the tally sheet,
selecting every name that corre
sponds to the number of this quoti
ent, until the full quota of names
from said precinct shall have been
chosen, and thus continue 'the pro
cess, through each precinct until the
required number of names shall have
been selected, and the names so fur
nished to the clerk of the distnee
court of the county or his deputy.

crop to be 1,301,760 tons, at a value
of $11,715,840. This great yield was
raised upon an acreage of 315.711
acres, which gave an average yield of
4.12 tons per acre. The increase in'
the production of this valuable hay
is very noticeable when the acreage
and production for the last four years
is considered. In 1902 the acreage of
alfalfa in the state was 201,556 acres,
and the estimated yield was 644,979

238,401, with an estimated production
of 834,403 tons, and in 1904, although
the acreage decreased about 2,000 .
acres, being 236,321 acres, yet the '

to a larger average yield. The total

LIFELONG ENEMY OF LIBERTY
Poblsdonostsoff. the Incarnation of Absolutism in
Russia. Gives Up.
There was not room in all Russia
for liberty and Constantino Petro
vitch Pobledonostseff. The czar prom
ised the Russians liberty, and Poble
donostseff, who had always denied
that the people were entitled to lib
erty, effaced himself.
For more than half a century Poble
donostseff was the evil genius of the
czars of Russia. He was the Incar
nation of absolutism. He believed In
the autocracy of the czar. He did not
believe in the rights of the people to
any form of self-government He did
tot believe In free speech, or in a free
press. He was equally opposed to
freedom of conscience. He did not be
lieve in educating the masses. He be
lieved in the czar and the Orthodox
church and in nothing else.
As His Enemies See Him.
' Pobiedonostseff's enemies have de
clared tha't his ruthless fanaticism
has broken up thousands of families,
ruined countless men of the noblest
character, and driven untold thou
sands into Siberian exile; that his
long life has been devoted to working
evil, unredeemed by one single act of
charity or nobility; that his hands are
stained with the blood of massacred
Jews, knouted peasants, and blud
Whether these charges are true or
false, or partly true and partly false.
Pobledonostseff ps the most hated
man in Russia to-day. And yet his bit
terest enemies gladly testify to his
sincerity and his absolute purity of
character. Money has never soiled
his hands. His name has never been
connected with scandal, although his
fierce denunciation of the immorality
of even men high in Russia's society
stings like the whip of a scorpion,
and Intensifies the already burning
hatred felt for him.
It is admitted, too, without dispute
that Pobledonostseff is totally without
personal ambition. His enemies, who
speak of him as bigoted, fanatical,
and cruel, admit that he is actuated
In all his policies and plans by a de
vout and fervent Ideal. Singlemind
edness, simplicity, purity, intensity,
and a determination that is fanatical
these are the elements of Pobled-
Fifty Years of Public Service.
Pobledonostseff was born in Mos
cow In 1827. and since 1846 he has
been a part of Russia's official life,
for in that year, after completing his
education in the higher law school
of Russia, he was appointed by Czar
Nicholas I. as an official of the sen
ate. From 1859 until 1865 he was
professor of civil law at the Moscow
elation with the czarevitch for near
ly ten years that gave him such an

"Johnnie Champaigne's" Butter.
A typical old French-Capadian

of Pobledonostseff mounted the
throne. Alexander HI. tore up the
constitution his father had signed and
inaugurated "the terror" in Russia. In
those awful years of fierce warfare
between absolutism and nihilism,
years in which thousands of liberal
Russians went to the scaffold, to
prison, or to Siberia Pobledonostseff
was the power behind the throne.
The czar ruled Russia, but Pobledo
nostseff ruled the czar. The czar
made made him procurator of the
holy synod and thereafter Pobledo
nostseff ruled the church as well as
the czar. His reign continued until
Alexander III. died and the present
czar, Nicholas II.. mounted the throne.
From tliis period his influence in
state affairs grew rapidly. He be
came a member of the council of the
ministry of justice, a privy councilor,
a senator, a secretary of state, a min
ister, and finally chief procurator of
the holy synod. Since the death of
the Czar Liberator Alexander II. he
has been unquestionably the most
powerful man in Russia. He has been
a voluminous writer on jurisprudence
and politics, and his "Course of Civil

Personally he is exceedingly interest

party the grand dukes, the chiefs of
the bureaucracy of whom Pobiedon

II. decreed the end of exile to Siberia
for political crimes and Pobledonost
seff nullified the decree by his influ

whom the enforcement of the decree
was intrusted. The czar decreed more
privileges for the zemstvos and Po
biedonostseff's influence prevented
the decree from going into effect.
Nicholas II. a year ago promised the
people wider liberties, and the same
day he signed a ukase, said to have
been written by Pobiedonostseff. who
arose from a sick bed to go to the
palace at midnight, nullifying every
thing he had promised.
But all things come to an end. The
Russian people, aroused and terribly

for liberty, and the czar, deserted by

frightened bureaucratic chiefs,

Lady Suffered Tortures Until Cured
by Cuticura Scratched Day
"My scalp was covered with little
pimples and I suffered tortures from
the itching. I was scratching all day
and night, and I could get no rest. I
washed my head with hot water and
Cuticura Soap and then applied the
Cuticura Ointment as a dressing. One
box of the Ointment and one cake of
Cuticura Soap cured me. Now my
head is entirely clear and my hair is
growing splendidly. I have used Cu
